I like other people’s children. I also like other people’s plants and gardens. I’m pretty good with kids. Plants, however, don’t enjoy my company.
Today I got to know two ferns rather well — we bonded over my trying to get them into decorative urns. At first they struggled but eventually they gave in.
Ferns are shade-loving and my balcony is one shady place. Ordinarily, the balcony doesn’t have any plants — it has an ashtray and that’s about it. But the condo will be on the market soon and a few large plants out there will make someone decide they must buy the place. Plants (and a some throw pillows) will sell the condo.
Fern and Vern (as I have named them) will need to convince people that there can be greenery and peacefulness in the middle of the city. The throw pillows just have to act natural.
- Does anyone know how often Fern and Vern need refreshments?
